"Today we are 180 people where most people know each other by name," says CEO

Supercell has revealed selected financial results for 2015. The company achieved €2,109 million ($2,326 million) in GAAP revenue in 2015, and earnings (before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) of €848 million ($964 million).

Supercell's CEO Ilkka Paananen gave the following statement:

"These financial results are of course great and we are very proud of them. However, the real highlight for us is how we've been able to get here while staying true to our founding vision that was all about people. We believed that if we bring together the best people, create the best possible environment for them, then with enough time and some luck, some great games will follow. Games that millions of people around the world will want to play for years and years."

"Despite the financial success, we have been able to keep the company relatively small. Today we are 180 people where most people know each other by name, and where people work in small and independent teams, in a zero bureaucracy environment."

"I am incredibly proud of our people whose passion for excellence has led to this success. They set the bar extremely high for themselves and want to make the best games possible. I am so lucky to be able to work with them, and in an environment like this."

On Monday, Paananen shared on social media that the company's daily active users count had hit 100 million.

In 2014 Supercell tripled its full-year revenue in 2014 with a haul of $1.7 billion and the company doubled its earnings with a profit of $565 million.
